“Chain-Off” Calls Attention to Suffering of Chained Dogs


Guam -You might have noticed something out of the ordinary in the Agana Shopping Center parking lot this past weekend. Volunteers from Dogs Deserve Better Guam wore collars and chains to raise awareness about the mistreatment and neglect of man’s best friend.

Mindy Larson organized the weekend event and chained herself to a doghouse in the parking lot for 24 hours. Money raised during the second annual event will put up fences and provide free animal training workshops.

Larson’s demonstration was part of  a nationwide event to bring attention to the fate of dogs chained 24/7.  Dogs Deserve Better is a national, nonprofit, working organization to bring dogs out of the yard and into the home and the family.
